Worship preserves from lewdness and iniquity
Chapter “’Al-‘Ankabuut”- (The Spider) – 29
‘A-‘uu-zu Billaahiminash-Shay-taanir- Rajiim.
(I seek refuge in Allaah from Satan the outcast)
(In the name of Allaah, the Beneficent, the Merciful)
ٱتْلُ مَآ أُوحِىَ إِلَيْكَ مِنَ ٱلْكِتَٰبِ وَأَقِمِ ٱلصَّلَوٰةَ إِنَّ ٱلصَّلَوٰةَ تَنْهَىٰ عَنِ ٱلْفَحْشَآءِ وَٱلْمُنكَرِ وَلَذِكْرُ ٱللَّهِ أَكْبَرُ وَٱللَّهُ يَعْلَمُ مَا تَصْنَعُونَ 45
|45. RECITE THAT WHICH HATH BEEN INSPIRED in thee of the Scripture, and establish worship. Lo! Worship preserveth from lewdness and iniquity. And verily Remembrance of Allah is more Important. And Allah knoweth what ye do.||45. ‘UTLU MAAA ‘UUHIYA ‘ilayka minal-Kitaabi wa ‘aqimis-Salaah. ‘Innas-Salaata tanhaa ‘anil-fahshaaa-‘i wal-munkar. Wa la-ZikrUllaahi ‘Akbar. Wallaahu Ya’-lamu maa tasna-‘uun.|
Mankind is a slave to old customs and rites and is not ready to leave them, but it is fact also that old matters do not remain on their original condition for a long time. And often it happens that a work was required to be done because of the timely need, but later that was no longer needed. At that time, leaving it would be suitable. But notwithstanding, that perseveres. People forget its actual object and begin to take interest in that matter. Islam would also have become a custom and rite if Holy Qur’an had not been present for its protection. Even now, being careless from the Commandments mentioned in Hoy Qur’an, can change the form of Islam.
Therefore, it has been commanded in this verse: Reciting, hearing and understanding Holy Qur’an, causing to hear and to understand are compulsory. Moreover, offering prayer at its proper time according to its all conditions is incumbent, so that hope of salvation from immorality and wrongdoing stand firm due to deep connection with Holy Qur’an. Reciting Qur’an and establishing worship is best source of Allaah’s remembrance. And the remembrance of Allaah Almighty is more important, which saves the mankind from sins. The mankind should know that Allaah Almighty is Well Aware of whatever he has been doing in the world. Whosoever will remember Him; will be rewarded, and who will be careless from His remembrance; will have no abode.
